We have eaten in and they have great service but no very often. When we are too busy to cook my sons ask if we can have Indian takeaways and they always love the food and I never forget to order the naan bread.

Great interpretation of the Indian food that Kiwis like - I had a chicken curry and my colleague went wild on their Tandoori options. Initially a bit disappointed that there was no Kingfisher beer, but then found they had craft Indian beers from Christchurch that were very good - I particularly enjoyed the 'Indian' Pilsener. Overall good value.

Great Indian food, we asked for something not on the menu and it wasn't a problem. They also suggested another dish which we will definitely get next time. The waiter took our order without writing it down. All the wait staff were very friendly. Go and try it.

Probably the best Indian food i had after a long time. Great service and friendly environment. We ordered three curies that i shared with my friends and all were really impressed with the Authenticity of the food. I would highly recommended this restaurant if you want to experience the Authentic Indian food. :)

We have never actually eaten in the restaurant only had take away. The food is tremendous. Having tried a fair few Indian restaurants in New Zealand and Australia I've always been disappointed as none have ever lived up to our British Indian curry! However Indian Minar has resored my faith. Each curry we have tried has been packed full of... More

Probably the cheapest Indian restaurant which we found in our south island trip of New Zealand. Samosas were delicious. It is not at all a bad idea(for someone who needs Indian food) to take one additional take-away meal from Indian Minar if Mt. cook is your next destination.

We were in search of a quick lunch on our way through Ashburton and after reading the other reviews decided to give this place a go and we were not disappointed! To date the best korma & butter chicken we've ever had in NZ and we've tried lots of restaurants that are really good but this is our pick -... More
